The older UFC games featured such unlockable characters as Bruce Buffer, Big John McCarthy, and the ring girls. The boss of the first UFC game on the Dreamcast was something called "The Ulti-Man."
I hope Bruce is really weak and easy to knock out.
I'm hoping EA games just don't ruin THQ's engine like in UFC undisputed 2.
EA sports MMA is so bad with the controls.
I like Bruce Lee in the game... I bet he will have a lot of striking stats but super low grappling stats. Maybe some takedown defence.
Just out of curiosity, how is Chuck Norris regarded as a martial artist around these parts? Think on a scale of Steven Segal to Benny the Jet.

A little before my time, but my brother in law used to watch his fights and said they were a pretty big deal.
Seagal got a 4th or 5th Dan in aikido then got meio promotions beyond that for helping promote aikido in the movie industry. He ran his father in laws dojo in Japan as per custom after marrying his Japanese wife. Aikido doesn't have competition (for the most part) so hard to compare those kinds of
stats. My opinion of his technique in his good days were pretty decent, energetic, and dynamic, but he lacked any real finesse and was a little one note. Now he moves terribly as thinks he knows like Kung fu and bagua, or whatever.
don't know anything about the other guy.
Basically both those guys have a legitimate traditional martial arts background with interesting back stories. Seagal blew his way out of proportion and took advantage of naive media and fan base. He is know. for his first few movies and the ramping up of violent fight scenes in movies.. He is full blown insane now, maybes shade below Gary Busey deranged.
Norris was a dominate karate competitor back in the sport's heyday. He helped make it a westernized thing, and made awesome cheesy action flicks. he is also a Christian conservative that is active in politics and constantly does pro military events.
I can't speak for other people but I respect him.

So he is pretty damn well rounded.
I take my hat off to any man that is in his 70s that can still kick my ass.
